Mezeo Software Welcomes Gladinet as a Mezeo Ready Cloud Gateway Solution Partner
Gladinet Solutions Enable Seamless Cloud Gateway Access to Mezeo Based Clouds
HOUSTON, June 3, 2010 – Mezeo Software™ (www.mezeo.com), a leading provider of a deployable cloud storage platform, today announced the addition of Gladinet™ (http://www.gladinet.com) as a Mezeo Ready Cloud Gateway Solution Partner. Gladinet offers two cloud gateway solutions: Cloud AFS and Cloud Desktop. Cloud AFS, a file server cloud gateway solution with CIFS/NFS support, can now use any Mezeo-based storage cloud. Cloud Desktop allows users to map to a Mezeo based storage cloud as a virtual network drive on their PC.
Launched earlier this week, the Mezeo Ready Program is designed to make it easier for customers and service providers to find and deploy Mezeo Ready solutions. The Mezeo Ready community is made up of service providers, customers, developers, cloud gateway providers and technology partners all focused on delivering cloud storage solutions.
“Solutions that enable cloud access, what we refer to as “cloud gateways or cloud clients,” are becoming increasingly important in the cloud computing space, and Gladinet’s solutions amplify the benefits of the Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform by making it easier to seamlessly access, aggregate, and backup to the cloud,” said Steve Lesem, President and CEO of Mezeo Software. “As a Mezeo Ready Partner, Gladinet is an ideal solution for customers looking for flexible CIFS/NFS access to a Mezeo cloud.”
“We are excited about being part of the Mezeo Ready Program, and our joint cloud storage solution will benefit Mezeo customers by offering a cost-effective extension of their onsite storage,” said Gladinet co-founder Jerry Huang. “The Gladinet and Mezeo solution will enable organizations to attach cloud storage to existing IT infrastructure to create a multi-tiered storage solution with low impact and faster backup or restore times.”
